Our Mission for the Month for December is the local food pantry and soup kitchen NATIVITAS.
IPC has a long history of supporting this critical ministry in the heart of Brussels. From those who have nowhere else to turn to the working poor, more and more people are having a hard time feeding their families and making ends meet. The cold winter months are yet to begin; this time can be long and hard for the homeless and needy. We can make a difference!
The children of IPC will be leading our food drive to collect non-perishable food items. This will be distributed to families who will take their packages home to prepare their own meals.
The adults at IPC will have the opportunity to make a financial donation, which will be used to purchase much needed fresh food in bulk for the Nativitas soup kitchen.
Our goal for 2016 is to collect 500 kg of shelf-stable food and a minimum of 1.200 €, the amount it takes to provide bulk food for the soup kitchen for one month.

Thank for your support of this worthy cause.
We have been contacted by Serve the City and others working with refugees and the homeless in our community. With the significant change in the weather, there is an urgent need for blankets and sleeping bags. If you have something to donate, please contact Pastor Murray. Thanks!
